We thought we would forgo the usual layout of the week post, and give everyone a chance to comment or offer prayer on today's Memorial...As Americans, we must never forget what our Country has gone through in the last 10 years. For those of us who knew someone closely connected to that day, our prayers are with you and their families.

Both of my Uncles worked at the World Trade Centers, both were survivors, and as a family we are forever grateful to still have them with us. Please pray for my Uncle Ray, who is now permanently disabled as a result of the tragedy that day. .
I lost a friend and classmate David Halderman. He was a Lieutenant Firefighter from Squad 18. He had followed in his daddy's footsteps. I grew up in a firefighter town, and will remember David fondly. I sent his mom a little prayer this morning as she had also lost her husband, Davids daddy, the month before she lost David.
I also lost out dear neighbor Charlie Mills. Mr Mills lived a cross the street from us where I grew up. Charlie had coached both of my brothers in Soccer for the Brentwood Soccer League. And being a neighbor, I remember my brothers thinking they were special cause the coach lived across the street. But Charlie made them feel special, because he thought all kids had talent and they were all special. He saw the best in everybody. We all loved him!
One of my brothers teammates, Fernando, told us about a story years ago, when Charlie coached my brothers team. Read it CLICK HERE This was Charlie Mills...Our community Policeman, killed, trying to rescue those in the tragedy that day, after leaving his office on the 87th floor. He was Bureau Chief of New York State Office of Tax Enforcement - Petroleum, Alcohol and Tobacco Bureau, New York. Because of Charlie and the other hero's that day, about 25,000 lives were spared...His family knew he would be one of the last ones out because he was helping others.....That was Charlie..
Gosh, I miss him...

My prayers to all who let loved ones that day. I watched some of the coverage on tv yesterday, but had to stop. All the emotions and feelings the images brought back. I will never forget the loved ones, family, friends and acquaintances we lost as well as our innocence.

God Bless this great country, and my heart and prayers go out to all who have lost someone in such a horrific way.

I will never forget that day. I am from Pittsburgh, PA and was working near the city. Our city was on the flight path of the plane that crashed in Somerset. The whole city and surrounding suburbs were all on alert that day. We were glad that the crisis was averted in Pittsburgh, but were so very saddened by the end result of that particular flight, and the others as well.

Such a senseless act. In church yesterday, our priest spoke of forgiveness. It's so hard to forgive when we have lost so much.
